'Ek kan ook sommer dadelik my kop op 'n blok sit om almal te verseker dat daar net die mooi en edele dinge van die lewe hier gaan verskyn, anders as die dinge wat onse Steve Hofmeyr op sy blog kwytraak, want die enigste lelike woord wat ek ken, is ghwano - en nou dat ek dit gesê het, voel ek amper ek moet my mond met seepsoda gaan uitwas.'
Kop op 'n blok is 'n versameling blogs van die ewig jeugdige Philip de Vos. Dit is vlot geskryf en die humor (wat dikwels selfspot insluit) is werklik snaaks. Inderwaarheid vorm hierdie stukke 'n soort outobiografie van een van die mees geliefde skrywers in Afrikaans. Die bundel bevat ook anekdotiese sketse oor bekende figure uit die kunstewêreld, soos die sangeres Cecilia Wessels, die aktrise Anna Neethling-Pohl en die skrywers Freda Linde en Karel Schoeman.

13 Augustus 2017. Ansja vat haar twee dogtertjies kerk toe. Heeldag het sy ʼn naar gevoel op die krop van haar maag, asof iemand haar wind uitgeskop het. Sy hou by ʼn stopstraat naby hul huis stil en toe sy begin draai, jaag ʼn motor in hulle vas. Haar jongste dogtertjie, Larissa, se kop word met die impak vergruis. Met bomenslike krag sleep sy Larissa uit die kar. Dan verloor sy haar bewussyn en sien van bo haarself en haar kinders op die sypaadjie lê. Alles word lig. Daar is lieflike musiek en reënboogkleure. Vrede en liefde heers en niks maak meer saak nie. Sy dryf weg. Maar dan hoor sy haar oudste dogtertjie na haar roep. En sy moet terug. Na die pyn van ʼn gebreekte lyf en gebroke hart. Hoe hervat sy haar lewe?

The remarkable life of Lady in Waiting to Princess Margaret who was also a Maid of Honour at the Queen's Coronation. Anne Glenconner reveals the real events behind The Crown as well as her own life of drama, tragedy and courage, with the wonderful wit and extraordinary resilience which define her. Anne Glenconner has been close to the Royal Family since childhood. Eldest child of the 5th Earl of Leicester, she was, as a daughter, described as 'the greatest disappointment' by her family as she was unable to inherit. Her childhood home Holkham Hall is one of the grandest estates in England. Bordering Sandringham the Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret were frequent playmates. From Maid of Honour at the Queen's Coronation to Lady in Waiting to Princess Margaret, Lady Glenconner is a unique witness to royal history, as well as an extraordinary survivor of a generation of aristocratic women trapped without inheritance and burdened with social expectations. She married the charismatic but highly volatile Colin Tennant, Lord Glenconner, who became the owner of Mustique. Together they turned the island into a paradise for the rich and famous, including Mick Jagger and David Bowie, and it became a favourite retreat for Princess Margaret. But beneath the glitz and glamour there has also lurked tragedy. On Lord Glenconner's death in 2010 he left his fortune to a former employee. And of their five children, two grown-up sons died, while a third son had to be nursed back from a coma by Anne, after having suffered a near fatal accident. Anne Glenconner writes with extraordinary wit, generosity and courage and she exposes what life was like in her gilded cage, revealing the role of her great friendship with Princess Margaret, and the freedom she can now finally enjoy in later life.

Laramie: 'n Terugblik op Eugène N. Marais:

Eugène N. Marais is in 2021 honderd en vyftig jaar gelede gebore en het vyf en tagtig jaar gelede aan eie hand gesterf. Hy het 'n breë terrein bestryk as prosaskrywer, digter, dramaturg, natuurkundige, hipnoterapeut, regsman en joernalis. Sy VERSAMELDE WERKE het twee uitgawes beleef en ouer sowel as jonger lesers vind steeds daarby aanklank.
LARAMIE bevat bydraes deur eietydse skrywers in die vorm van prosa, poësie en essays uit die natuurwetenskappe, sielkunde, filosofie en geskiedenis. Standaardafrikaans, Griekwa-Afrikaans en Kaaps, selfs Nederlands, loop saam op Marais se spoor. Lof en meelewing maar ook fel kritiek bied 'n gebalanseerde kyk op hierdie geroemde, omstrede en tragiese figuur. Dit bevat iets vir almal.

“… 'n prikkelende, toeganklike bundel met 'n ryke verskeidenheid … fiksie en niefiksie en literêr gewigtig sowel as populêr. Dit is die ideale manier om die erflating van Eugène Marais lewend te hou en om selfs Marais-aanhangers verder te laat dink - krities én verbeeldingryk te laat dink oor hierdie belangrike literêre figuur.”- Dr. Francois Smith, skrywer en letterkundige.

Bydraes deur: Martjie Bosman, Dominique Botha, Pierre Cronje, Thomas Deacon, Piet de Jager, Clinton V. du Plessis, Hans du Plessis, J.C.M.D. du Plessis, Erik Holm, Daniel Hugo, Johan Kruger, Johan Marais, Johann Lodewyk Marais, Jean Meiring, Johan Myburg, Chase Rhys, R.R.

Told for the very first time, this is the story of the adventure that shaped the world.
By knowing the shape of our earth we can create maps, survive the oceans, follow rivers, navigate the skies, and travel across the globe. This is the story of our world, of how we discovered what no one thought possible - the shape of the earth.
A thrilling and page-turning account of the first major expedition by data gatherers and qualified observers to interior Peru, to discover the shape and magnitude of the earth. Until humanity discovered this it would be impossible to produce accurate maps and sea charts, without which thousands of lives would be lost, and exact locations of cities, roads and rivers would never be known. This fascinating and dramatic story weaves scientific rigour, egos, funding crises and betrayal with sea voyages, jungles and volcanoes.

Ter viering van Dolf van Niekerk se negentigste verjaarsdag verskyn hier 'n versameling filosofiese, bepeinsende en besinnende essays uit die pen van een van Afrikaans se meesterskrywers. Vanaf sy vroegste gewaarwordinge tot sy kennismaking met groot filosowe soos Nietzsche, Kant en Hegel op universiteit en in sy daaglikse handel en wandel daarna: altyd maar bly die bewustheid van 'n onsigbare “iets” by hierdie aristokratiese gees - en 'n soeke na 'n beter verstaan van dít wat “die sterretyd en die menstyd aan mekaar verbind”.

In 48 essays wat die biografiese tydperk tussen ongeveer sy vyfde en twintigste lewensjaar dek, skryf 'n deurleefde, wyse Van Niekerk oor sy vroegste herinnerings aan sy geboortedorp, sy gesin en sy helderste herinnerings aan die plekke en mense wat hom gevorm het tot die mens wat hy geword het. Want, soos wat hy in die verhaal “Die skinkbord” skryf: Jy kan net wees wie jy is, en jy is wat jy word.

The creator of Salvator Mundi (Saviour of the World) officially sold at auction in New York in November 2017 for the record-breaking sum of GBP341 million. He was history's most creative genius. What secrets can he teach us? Based on thousands of pages from Leonardo's astonishing notebooks and new discoveries about his life and work, Walter Isaacson weaves a narrative that connects his art to his science. He shows how Leonardo's genius was based on skills we can improve in ourselves, such as passionate curiosity, careful observation, and an imagination so playful that it flirted with fantasy. He produced the two most famous paintings in history, The Last Supper and the Mona Lisa. But in his own mind, he was just as much a man of science and technology. With a passion that sometimes became obsessive, he pursued innovative studies of anatomy, fossils, birds, the heart, flying machines, botany, geology, and weaponry. His ability to stand at the crossroads of the humanities and the sciences, made iconic by his drawing of Vitruvian Man, made him history's most creative genius. His creativity, like that of other great innovators, came from having wide-ranging passions. He peeled flesh off the faces of cadavers, drew the muscles that move the lips, and then painted history's most memorable smile. He explored the math of optics, showed how light rays strike the cornea, and produced illusions of changing perspectives in The Last Supper. Isaacson also describes how Leonardo's lifelong enthusiasm for staging theatrical productions informed his paintings and inventions. Leonardo's delight at combining diverse passions remains the ultimate recipe for creativity. So, too, does his ease at being a bit of a misfit: illegitimate, gay, vegetarian, left-handed, easily distracted, and at times heretical. His life should remind us of the importance of instilling, both in ourselves and our children, not just received knowledge but a willingness to question it-to be imaginative and, like talented misfits and rebels in any era, to think different.

This book is as much Albert Luthuli's extraordinary story as that of the ANC, which he led for 15 years. He gives an account of the repression and resistance that were to shape the South African political landscape forever: the Defiance Campaign, which marked the first mass challenge to apartheid, drafting the Freedom Charter, the Treason Trial, and the Alexandra bus boycott. 

This book bears witness to Luthuli's unfailing humility, perseverance, and passionate commitment to his values.

'This is a most exceptional and unforgettable book' - Antjie Krog

As a young boy growing up in Port Elizabeth in the 1960s and 1970s, Steven Robins was haunted by an old photograph of three unknown women on a table in the dining room. Only later did he learn that the women were his father's mother and sisters, photographed in Berlin in 1937, before they were killed in the Holocaust. Steven's father, who had fled Nazi Germany before it was too late, never spoke about the fate of his family who remained there.

Steven became obsessed with finding out what happened to the women, but had little to go on. In time he stumbled on official facts in museums in Washington DC and Berlin, and later he discovered almost one hundred letters sent to his father and uncle from the family in Berlin during the Nazi terror. The women in the photograph could now tell their story. Letters of Stone tracks Steven's journey of discovery about the lives and fates of the Robinski family, in southern Africa, Berlin, Riga and Auschwitz. It also explores the worldwide rise of eugenics and racial science before the war, which justified the murder of Jews by the Nazis and caused South Africa and other countries to close their doors to Jewish refugees.

Most of all, this book is a poignant reconstruction of a family trapped in an increasingly terrifying and deadly Nazi state, and of the immense pressure on Steven's father in faraway South Africa, which forced him to retreat into silence.

A unique combination of memoir and artistic biography, interspersed with original artworks, from the acclaimed artist and author of SELF-PORTRAIT. We are both painters. We can connect to each other through images, in our own unvoiced language. But I will try and reach you with words. Through talking to you I may come alive and begin to speak. Celia Paul has felt a lifelong connection to the artist Gwen John. There are extraordinary parallels in their lives and work. Both have always made art on their own terms. Both were involved with older male artists. Both worked hard to keep themselves and the sacred flame of their creativity from being extinguished by others. Letters to Gwen John is Paul's imagined correspondence with Gwen John, whose life and work have loomed so large in hers. These intimate, passionate, haunting letters allow Paul to reach across eras, to weigh up the sacrifices she has made, and to explore the rich possibilities of a life apart. With illuminating insights into the life and work of Gwen John, Letters to Gwen John is a unique form of memoir and conversation, and an unforgettable insight into a life devoted to making art.
